The Mission

At Access Design Studio, our mission is twofold:

We are businesses' website accessibility ally. We share your passion for delivering incomparable customer experiences, to everyone, of every ability. And we believe that lowering accessibility barriers should be an easy, stress-free process for you.

We’re also advocates for people with disabilities. Everyone deserves access to the experiences that make life rich and vibrant, which is why part of our proceeds support RESNA (Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology Society of North America).

The Difference

We combine Denise's lifetime-of-experience with people with disabilities (see "The Reason" below) with over 20 years of web design experience.

With 20+ years of experience as a web development agency, we know how to create websites that convert. And how to bring your unique offerings to people of all abilities.

We also know that you can’t entrust your site’s inclusion to an overlay or plug-in. That won’t bring you the level of access—or shielding from potential lawsuits—that only a dedicated team of experts can.

The Reason

Access Design Studio CEO & Founder, Denise Páne, has spent her entire life as an advocate for people with disabilities. The reason is her brother, who has epilepsy and is developmentally delayed. The deep love their family shares for each other has made disability advocacy and assuring everyone has equal access to the web a natural course for Denise.

Denise is a member of the International Association of Accessibility Professionals and the World Wide Web Consortium.

The Team

Access Design Studio brings to your project a unique, and uniquely qualified team of design and digital accessibility experts. We are WCAG 2.2 AA certified and Online ADA Accredited.

We maintain our own internal Accessibility Advisory Board, composed of individuals of varying abilities who provide testing and first-person feedback on the work we perform.
